I come to freelance editing after a long career as an English professor and teacher educator. I bring to editing deep knowledge of education, social sciences, English literature, composition theory and practice, and education administration. I also have knowledge and experience in the biological sciences, having completed a minor in biology and having worked as a scientific editor at University of California San Francisco Medical Center and for researchers in Japan. I come to editing with an excellent professional reputation for work well and thoroughly done, submitted on time.
With over 30 years of editing experience, I offer developmental editing, substantive editing, copy editing, and proofreading services. I am well versed in MLA, APA and AMA styles and can assist with bibliography preparation in those formats. As an editor, I strive to preserve your style while helping to make your work as reader-friendly as possible.
My professional experience includes 30 years as an English professor and 10 years as Director of the Composition Program at San Francisco State University. I taught every level of composition, from basic writing through graduate courses in the teaching of composition, along with courses such as Grammar for Writers.
